Student Group

Are you intrigued by a career in museums? Ever wondered what happens behind-the-scenes? Do you like to talk and think about museums?

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology Student Group welcomes undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in exploring museums with like-minded peers. Members participate in professional development opportunities, work on projects, take field trips to local museums, and regularly discuss issues facing museums today.

Express interest in joining the group.

Student Group Leaders


Kelley Tackett is a senior studying archaeology, linguistic anthropology, and Middle East studies. Her research focuses on the way local histories and communities are excluded from narratives of world heritage and the universal museum. When not reading about museums or ancient history, she competes for Brown's varsity swim team, helps run the TrowelBlazers archaeology group, and swing dances. 

Zoe Zimmermann is a sophomore from Florida who is concentrating in history. As a lifelong lover of museums, she is thrilled to be co-leading the Haffenreffer Museum Student Group this year and is looking forward to sharing her museum passion with the Brown community!
